Our venues are ideal for various celebrations and occasions. Our guests depend on us to provide great venues with superb facilities and excellent customer service. Hear what our guests say:



"We wish to thank you and ALL of the staff, at Woodside for making our celebration lunch yesterday, such a wonderful occasion.

From the first meeting that we had with you to discuss our event, the professionalism shown by the receptionists and yourself was exemplary.

The event yesterday surpassed our expectations in as much as everyone was impressed by the quality of the food and the quiet efficiency of the waiting staff, overseen by the Maitre D'hote whose organisation was superb.  Nothing was too much trouble from finding a packet of crisps for a growing teenage grandson who had travelled with family from Devon but had not eaten breakfast before leaving and for whom lunch was too far away, to accommodating a guest who requested a plain dessert.

In short there was nothing to fault and we will recommend The Woodside when and wherever we can. We send our thanks and best wishes to each and everyone of the staff."

"What a wonderful weekend we had!

Firstly, thank you so much for your hard work in pulling it all together; it all went like clockwork. Our bedroom was excellent with a lovely view over the countryside. Dinner in the Terrace Restaurant was excellent.

Saturday was outstanding. Our guests who stayed enjoyed the afternoon, meeting in the Coffee/Bar Lounge for a natter and a walk round the grounds. All were complimentary about their rooms. Everyone was impressed with the Baronial Hall setting and many photographs were taken. The reception worked very well with all enjoying the drinks and canapes.

Now to the meal in the Baronial Hall. Wow! Wonderful food in an amazing setting, served hot (where appropriate) by a splendid team. We cannot speak highly enough of all the staff whom we met. Our special thanks to the Chef who produced the wonderful food but thanks also to the staff who served the food impeccably. We left a donation at reception for staff gratuities in recognition of the wonderful service we received.

I would thoroughly recommend Highgate House to anyone considering a wedding or other celebration."

"I had to email you and say thank you so much for organising the memorial gathering last Sunday.

It was an amazing day, so many family and friends came and the staff at Woodside were so kind and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

The hot buffet lunch was excellent and the room was just the right size for this occasion. Please convey my thanks to all the staff who helped to make this sad day such a special one.

We also really enjoyed our overnight stay at Woodside.We were delighted with our room (71) which was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was excellent too."

“Thank you so much for all the work you put in organising my cousins hen party this weekend. The room we had to ourselves for lunch and dinner and the positioning of the bedrooms just made it better and easier for all of us.

The lovely touch of the card and brownies for the bride in the bedroom was very kind. Please give thanks to all the staff for their lovely service and the food was amazing. We had a wonderful weekend and will be recommending it to others. Once again thank you.”

"Just wanted to say a huge thank you and to say the staff in reception, the bar staff, the waitresses in the restaurant and the ladies that did the rooms were excellent. The service was 5 star and the food from the afternoon tea to the main meal was fantastic the chefs are a credit. We had a brilliant time and will be highly recommending Highgate. I hope management appreciates that they have fantastic staff which gives a fantastic service. We will be visiting again."

"Everything went extremely well and people were impressed with the accommodation and particularly with the food. The staff were all very helpful – particularly the event manager on duty who organised an extra dinner for a speaker at the seminar who had forgotten to book. Quite a lot of club members would like to come back for another event next year! Please pass on our thanks to everyone who made it such a great afternoon and evening."

"The venue is far superior to any other I’ve experienced on a YHET weekend. It’s a nice location, conveniently located near the M1 but rural enough to be beautiful. The hotel is unique; a mixture of old and new. The old is charming. The new is comfortable. There’s free parking, Wi-Fi, sky TV, and refreshments.  There is even a small pool, gym and sauna on the premises but I didn’t use them this time. The food was delicious and the chef literally bent over backwards to cater to every single dietary requirement magnificently. Every single staff member I encountered was exceptionally helpful and friendly."
